Designed to be a “battle armour for snow sports and adventure”, Vollebak Condition Black Jacket is almost indestructible. Whatever you’re doing, in all harsh weather conditions and extreme situations, it will provide the necessary comfort, warmth and durability.
It’s constructed of multiple layers using military grade materials. The layers are elastic, breathable and insulated, as well as windproof and water repellent. The inner layer is made of Schoeller’s WB-400 softshell coated with a NanoSphere layer.
The outer layer is made from 19 panels of ceraspace anchored in a polymer matrix. It can survive impacts at 120kmph, a micro-meteoroid shower and many other traumas or natural disasters. This material is also highly resistant to abrasion.
Probably the most important feature is its ability to keep you warm and regulate body temperature. This jacket has two Survival Pockets on the upper chest where you can slide your hands in to keep them warm. They are double-lined and have a magnetic closure, so you can open them just when you need to.
Also, the material will use your body’s heat to warm the three most important arteries. Inspired by the Neil Armstrong glove that reminded him what to do, this jacket has instructions printed on the sleeve, just in case you’re unable to think clearly and you need to survive.
To limit the skin’s exposure, the muzzle fastens up to your goggles and the helmet can be fastened tight. Besides the two Survival Pockets, there’s one inner pocket for a phone with cable channels and one external waterproof pocket on the left upper arm.
